CICT and Intel Launches Community e- Center in Lubao
by NCC Advocacy Group
The Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT), through the NCC-CICT Field Operations Office (FOO), and Intel Microelectronics Philippines, Inc., launched another Community e-Center (CeC) in Lubao, Pampanga last October 25, 2005.

The said CeC is the 45th e-Center to be opened to the public, according to FOO Director Maria Teresa C. Camba. As the lead implementer of the “Jumpstarting Electronic Governance in Local Government Units,” otherwise known as the e-LGU Project, NCC aims to establish 100 CeCs nationwide, as one of the major components in e-LGU project implementation.

Mayor Dennis G. Pineda lauded the government efforts towards computerizing his municipality. In his speech, he thanked CICT and Intel, in considering Lubao as one of the beneficiaries for the CeC initiatives.

Mayor Pineda said that the CeC would be a great help to his constituents, especially to the students who can now access ICT through affordable means. He is optimistic that the CeC will be offering online education applications in the near future. That is, in addition to the present services being offered such as Internet access, word processing, spreadsheets and other applications.

Meanwhile, CICT Commissioner and concurrent Director General of the NCC, Angelo Timoteo M. Diaz de Rivera, expressed his gratitude in behalf of CICT, for Intel’s support to the project. He added that ICT is an integral component in addressing the digital divide. Likewise, ICT is a must towards the transformation that will contribute to growth-building and other socio-economic capabilities of the country.

Representatives from Intel Corporation, headed by John A. Antone, who is the Vice President, Sales and Marketing Group and General Manager Asia-Pacific, witnessed the launching together with Ricky F. Banaag, Country Manager for Intel Microelectronics (Phils.) and other Intel staff.
